St.Lukes Hospital“I believe our partnership with St. Luke’s will serve as a national model for higher education health care,” said Dr. Jeffrey Goldstein, Director of Health Services at Lafayette College. “Our students will have immediate access to top-notch care – both physical and mental health services.”

The St. Luke’s initiative launched this semester. “With the extension of St. Luke’s services and the ability for students to use video visits when the Bailey Health Center is closed, students can get better faster- and back into the classroom, “said Patricia Martino, a nurse who works at Lafayette’s Baily Health Clinic.

For three years running and five years total, St. Luke’s has won the Truven Top 100 Hospital Award, widely regarded as the highest honor nationally in hospital care and management. A multi-hospital system, St. Luke’s is affiliated with more than 1,200 doctors and 11,000 employees serving the Greater Lehigh Valley, Poconos and Northwestern New Jersey regions. As such, it is uniquely situated to offer Lafayette students a comprehensive suite of health care options:

Staffing for Health Clinic – St. Luke’s will provide additional clinical staff at the Bailey Health Clinic under the direction of Dr. Jeffrey Goldstein. With the addition of St. Luke’s advanced practitioners, Bailey Health Clinic has been able to extend its evening and weekend hours making health care more accessible to Lafayette students.

Video Visit – Lafayette students will receive a discounted rate of $15 per video visit.  Students can download the app to access the expertise of St. Luke’s and get a diagnosis or treatment from a physician in one easy video visit.
“St. Luke’s has the expertise and resources to provide for the wellbeing of the Lafayette student body,” said Dr. Robert Dolansky, Network Director of Urgent Care Services at St. Luke’s University Health Network. “We can help students feel better, which should help them do better academically and make the most of their college experience.”
